Free Drop / Product

Free Drop

The original intention of Free Drop aims at solving the hygienic problem of the tip of a pacifier by adding an accordion-liked protest cover on the existing basic silicone nipple. So, when a baby is sucking the pacifier, the space of the ‘accordion’ will be compressed result from the decrease of inner air. On the contrary, when the baby spit out the pacifier, the compressed ‘accordion’ space will be restored because of the reenter of air. The cover of Free Drop changes its shape by making use of air, thus to protest the tip of a pacifier.
